Test Drive: 1963 Volvo 122S Estate!

Hey, this is my friend Agent 0311's Volvo station wagon. Restored from a derelict field car over the last three years, off and on. A really fun car to drive, and should last a lifetime, unlike today's shit cars. These are rugged, honest cars with lots of charm and a great roar from the un-silenced twin SU carbs. High quality Bosch electrics and ZF steering box components are part of the reason these cars were so tough; most of the front end parts were still in perfect condition and were not replaced. This early Amazon still runs drum brakes all around, and charging is handled by generator. No upgrades were done to the car. The tires were sourced to match the original spare, still in the back. Hope you enjoyed looking at and listening to this great old car! See the story at volvo122s.blogspot.com, or check out coldwarmotors.blogspot.com if you really have to kill some time at work.

Real Drivers: Volvo 122 Amazon
See more at http://hittingredline.com/ . This was an film that I had meant to do in the fall of 2011, but ran out of time for and pushed back to spring. Jonathan Bigelow's 1966 Volvo Amazon has an interesting story that is even more fascinating to hear in full; between its construction and now, it has crossed a number of borders, first from Sweden to Norway, and then from Norway to the United States - and all in one family. For those of you who are particular, the irritating leaf blower cuts out at around 1:17.
